I would have to agree with the other post. My son has been at this school for two years and I am not sure that he is being challenged to tap into his potential. He also get good grades (honor roll) but I am still unsure that he is getting all that he needs. Also, unhappy about zero field trips and behavior of other children in his class (and school as a whole). He will not be attending Kirby next year, I have decided to send him to private school rater than him going to another poor performing school.
My dauthter has been at this school for 2 years and she has not learned anything new since her 4 years at private school. I am not pleased with zero field trips and minimum extra cirr activities. I am not happy with her going to Kirby in the sixth grade. Wonder why all other elementary schools have k-6 except Townsend and one other school in the Kirby Jr. high area. My daughter gets good grades but I wonder if she has learned anything significant. Don't like the fact that she does not get enough homework. She had homework in every subject in K-3 at private school. i.e. write spelling works and definition and sentence to prepare for a spelling test. In this school the homework consisted of studying spelling words.
